Google Chrome is a web browser has many Build or channels for its users. Mostly these builds are used by testers and developers to test the new upcoming changes and features of Chrome browser. There are four different releases of chrome browser which I am going to tell you and the difference between them and Google Chrome offline installers for all builds including Stable, Beta, Dev and Canary builds. All the download links point to the latest version of Chrome installer for each Operating System.
As clear from name, it is the Stable version of Chrome. Lots of testing is done for this and make it stable. This won’t crash or doesn’t have any other issues. After every 2-3 weeks, minor changes are added and after every 6 weeks, main or major changes are added in Chrome Stable version.
Chrome Beta is for public testing. Some newer features may not work as expected but overall it’s quite stable. It can be used for testing of new features. This version provides risk free testing as the testing is only done at small scale. Little changes are added every week in this but major changes are added after every 6 weeks.
With Chrome Dev, you can hurriedly check what’s next is coming in Chrome. Whatever the testers do coding, the user of Dev version quickly get that code. Sometime new features are having bugs in the Dev version which needs to be get off before they’ll be added in Beta version.
Chrome Canary build is simply Chrome of the future. It has the latest shiny features which will be a party of Chrome stable after a few weeks. All features are added to Canary build and then the next phase if Dev build phase which is a little most stable than Canary. The Canary build can be installed along side the stable version.
Canary, Beta and Dev channels are only partially translated in languages except of English. The text of features will only be translated into languages until they come to Stable version. If you want to test new upcoming features and changes of Chrome, you should go for Dev or Canary build. And the users who want crash-less and error-less browser, they should go for stable versions.
Hopefully this will make downloading Chrome easier for you. So what is your choice of Chrome Build?
